Well meaning people often like to give pat answers that will fix someone else’s pain. It does not work, and usually just makes things more difficult. If you really wbant to help those who are suffering around you, the best way to do so is by educating yourself on what it’s really like to live inside their painful world, and work alongside them even when there are no easy answers to bring a little relief. That’s what Jesus did, He entered into our suffering and provided eternal relief. Because of His suffering for us, we can be assured that by trusting in Him one day our pain will be over FOREVER. When our painful circumstances are not bringing about the change we so desperately want to see, He is our unseen hope that we can always cling to. He is the anchor in our storm, and He promises to hold onto us no matter what.
